The problems with having two massive elections at the same time

The problems with having two massive elections at the same time

My expectation is that Sunak will call the general election later on this year which will mean there is a strong likelihood that the US Presidential election and UK general elections will take place within weeks, if not days, of each other which risks in the UK the two elections getting interlinked. Liz Truss isn’t the first Tory to publicly endorse Donald Trump for President and I expect quite a few others will and effectively kiss the ring of Donald…

A Dismal Spectacle

A Dismal Spectacle

35 years ago – 14 February 1989 – Khomeini’s fatwa against Salman Rushdie was issued.

If she tried to stand again for the Tory leadership again she’s going to get humiliated like a gimp at a BDSM party. She’s completely in denial at the moment, it wasn’t the British Deep State that thwarted her plans, it was her plans being enacted that thwarted her which is why…

The situation has developed not necessarily to Kemi Badenoch’s advantage

The situation has developed not necessarily to Kemi Badenoch’s advantage

The Times have quite the revelation that, ceteris paribus, should lead to the sacking or resignation of Kemi Badenoch. A top civil servant told the former chairman of the Post Office to “hobble” into the election and not to “rip off the band aid” in terms of its finances, according to a memo unearthed on Tuesday. Sarah Munby, who was then permanent secretary at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, warned Henry Staunton that “politicians do not necessarily…
